My boss was hospitalized recently. Should I go visit?
That depends. I use the Platinum Rule in this situation. “Do unto others as they want to be done unto.” That means just because you would like visitors at your hospital bed does not mean your boss wants visitors. Many people aren’t up to entertaining in their bedclothes. Check with a family member and ask if your boss is receiving nonfamily visitors. Usually, a steady stream of clever cards and get-well wishes is enough. Flowers couldn’t hurt.
